marks a distinct betterment of the means

I the date of dispatch, something the de

this particular message came down from
l'ekiti to Tientsin by courrier and was put
on the wires either at that point or at

Berlin, Sept, 2.—The German pres* la
full of articles commenting on the latent
turn of the China ailuution, and it i* gen
daily construed a* marking the begin
ning of serious lack of haiuiouy between
the («otters, whose Chinese inlereale are
colliding at too many pointa to enable
them to maintain a united front length
iy. Russia* sudden change of attitude
came here a* a complete surprise, ainue
the latest previous utterances of Rusai*
seemed to denutu a continuance of the
closest German Russo relations on the
subject of China, although it was known
here that the unmeasured Yon Waidenee
idolatry and the putting by the einperur
of onus for \ on Waldersee * appointment
iipm the czar, aa well as the continued
increase of the German forces in Chinn
and Lmpcrur William* impulsive farewell
speeches, had greatly displeased Rusal*n
government circles, including the czar.
V on Waldci-sev has been sent ee the em
peror's personal man to China, rather
against the wishes of Count von Buelow,
the minister of foreigu affaire, who dis
approves of the "politico diploma general
issimo," whose lia ud in China may upaet
all Count von Buelow has been able to do.
Ncvcrtbeles* the emperor expect* that Von
Waldemei-, after his arrival in China, will
take Ins instructions solely from him and
c.ury out iiis majesty 'a personal ideas ra
g.tiding the Chinese situation. Von Bue
low n-jH-atcdly protested against thia ar
rangement, though unavailing, ll would
he a mistake to believe the euiperur there
in has the indorsement of the majority of
the nation, lit the case of You Buelow,
on the contrary, it is otherwise.

Faris, Sept. 2.—The Chinese situation,
as viewed in Paris, has assumed e brighter
a «pis t. The practical unaunnity of the
I lilted Matis», Russia, France and Japan
iu the desire to maintain the inegrity of
the empire m regarded aa disposing of
any question of |«artition. KngLnd's po
sition is undoubtedly aa strongly favora
ble to tbe foregoing policy aa that of any
(sjwer uientioiied, but it is more pleaemg
to France tliat bonds of accord should be
sworn between the United btatee, France
and Russia and that these natione should
a|i|Mor to he the controlling intluence to
ward peace. America's prupoeitioo to ac
cept la Hung Chang as go-betweca in the
negotiations is well received, although it
still desired that be produce tangible
evidence Hurt he is acting for the central
|*j» er. In fact, France ia ready to treat
with any plenipotentiary able to furnish
proper credential*. Russia's proposal to
withdraw the trisqis from Pekin coincides
with the feeling eutertained in Pane in
favor of a conciliatory policy.
The acceptance of these two proposi
tions by all the powers is considered aa
important step toward a satisfactory so
lution and one which will avoid causing •
convulsion within Chine end will minimize
the danger of a cunfiict among tne powers.
